A Little bit of Shameless Self Promotion, and……

I’ve been really busy lately ~ Through the urging and support of my really sweet friend Corra, I’ve started writing tutorials for some of my more popular pieces, and for some really vintage designs, that I dug up out of my ‘stash’ of old prototypes. I love teaching wire wrapping, and don’t get the opportunity to do so in person, as often as I’d like. Writing tutorials is the next best thing! You see my hands are badly damaged from both types of Arthritis, a car accident that sent my head through the windshield and my hands INTO the dash, and a ‘walking’ accident with my 155lb, African Mastiff, Suie (she accidentally fractured ALL the knuckles on my right hand). At some point my hands will stop working correctly; as it is gripping pliers is very painful ~ the Dr’s solution to this is to replace 5 knuckles in my left hand, and 9 knuckles in my right hand, but while that would end the pain, it would effectively end any wire work as well; I’d really like to share what I think are some great wire wrapping designs, and ideas before that happens.

My first tutorial listed is for a great pair of earrings, with a kind of ‘antique’, ‘vintage’ flair to them. I can’t wait to see what folks do with it –

In the tutorial I suggest using Sterling silver, and oxidizing them.

I made several other suggestions for variations, and am anxious to see the results.

Once I start getting some photos back, I will post them here

Please visit my Etsy Shop for this and upcoming tutorials – and there are always pretty goodies being added…

Now for a bit of the “and…….” part I mentioned in the title ~ My dear friend Corra, updated the photos for some of her tutorials,

and they are spectacular~

I tease her about sending all my pieces to her to photograph, but her being in Malaysia, and me being in US, kinda presents a problem :), although she did suggest I was welcome to visit :).

Thank you for visiting ~ please come back anytime.
